I'm so excited to share the style options for our upcoming knitalong, slated to kick off in mid October. At Knit Collage, we host two knitalongs (KALs) a year and they are what myself and the small but might team here lives for. We work on behind the scenes all year long. Leaning into a virtual community of creatives, especially during these trying times, is what it's all about. We connect with other makers, knit in community, cheer each other on, learn new things and finish with an heirloom handknit to treasure for years to come. In a completely non-preachy way, I also put a self care bent on the KAL and focus on how good knitting, creativity and making are for us! The design winners are chosen by popular vote so here is your chance to have your voice heard and counted. Feel free to share with friends! I would so appreciate your help and input to make this our best to date. Please let me know in the comments below what you're rooting for. If any of these intimidate you - please keep in mind that I teach you how to knit each style from start to finish in an online class that is yours forever. Last spring, many knitters tackled their first sweater ever!

Two large scale flowers adorn this cardi use the intarsia technique!

Option 6. Plaidtastic Scarf

A smaller project that will still be a blast to knit!

A simple design to try out intarsia!

Thank you so much for letting me know your faves! I so hope you'll vote and if you feel moved to, join me in the upcoming KAL (knitalong!). To be the first to know about the KAL, sign up for KAL only related emails/updates here

Big hugs,
